Listings: Stuyvesant Heights Duplex Rentals - 890 Lafayette Avenue

[Now updated with pics of the renovated baths...]

New to the Listings section of the blog, it's a garden duplex rental in a brownstone full of original details.  890 Lafayette Avenue has an open house this Thursday evening.  Original parquet floors, ceiling medallions, mantles, molding, pier mirrors, wood shutters... all in great shape!

Then you throw in the updated kitchen and a deck to the backyard...

You'd be pushing prices too if you had product that cleaned up this nice.  Sure, the closest train is the J/Z.  But $1,000+/BR rentals are popping up deeper into Brooklyn than anyone expected.  We're told you can rent the entire house for $8,000/month, the 4BR/3 bath upper duplex for $4,500/month, or the 3BR/1.5 bath lower duplex for $3,500.  Leave your NYTimes misleading "Is it better to rent or buy?" calculator at home!  They even got the most out of the attic-like top floor...

Washer/dryer in the place to boot!  Pics of the renovated baths came in too...

Worth a look-see if you want a slice of a whole brownstone in great shape.

Pro's:  original details for days, modern upgrades, lots of BR's, deck & garden, washer/dryer, either unit or the whole house available, open house makes showing a cinch

Con's:  not the first block people think of when they want Bed-Stuy, top price per bedroom for the area

Ideally:  makes us think we should step our game up on our 3BR garden duplex rental!
